Soldier's Psychology

I have always wondered as to why some people are the way they are and why certain individuals are so obsessed with military and political doctrines. Now I know.

There is a well known empirical formula for turning men into a fighting force willing to go anywhere and kill anyone. It has been independantly discovered by people as diverse as Hannibal and Chaka Zulu, and is well known to our modern military. A large part of the formula is to take young, late-puberty males and isolate them from society in general and women in particular. Once isolated, their sense of personal identity is be beaten down, they are sexually frustrated, and to create more intimacy with weapons than their genitalia. The whole point is to drive young men slightly insane in a particular way, so that they will not only follow, but enjoy orders from superiors to shoot strangers.

If done properly it will link agressiveness with the sex drive, making the act of shooting at people almost orgasmic in both its intensity and satisfaction. Not only is aggressiveness linked to sex, the men are kept sexually frustrated as well. Seeking an outlet, and given shooting at strangers as the only acceptible outlet, their sex drives will lead them to go into action and fight. This is why the military has historically had very strong objections to homosexuality and masturbation, also. Both provide a (i.e. not hostile to designated strangers) outlets for the sex drive. Most cases of military servicemen committing acts of rape are those soldiers who are yet to have the true "soldier's psychology".

Really Bad People Skills

I just can't do it. I can't treat Social Relationships as people-to-people things. They will always be State-to-State Diplomacy. For example, when I get upset or offended by someone, I do what NATIONS do. Nations break of diplomatic relationships or make trade blockades. People get revenge or demand an apology. I break of any social interactions and make as little business as possible (though I am yet to declare war).

*sigh* Elementary life wasn't like this. THEN, I could walk up to a person, grab him by the neck, and say my thoughts out loud.'s different...

Gay Joke

The Rancher's WifeA successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a very good-looking woman, and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.Two men applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk. He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching.For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well. Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town an kick up your heels."The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night. One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return. Two o'clock, and no hired hand. He returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.
She quietly called him over to her. "Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said.
Trembling, he did as she directed."Now take off my boots." He did as she asked, ever so slowly.
"Now take off my socks." He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.
"Now take off my skirt." He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.
"Now take off my bra." Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor.
"Now," she said, "take off my panties." By the light of the fire, he slowly pulled them down and off.
Then she looked at him and said. . ."If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired."

My First Original Military/Social Strategy

I can't believe it worked. I made someone think I had materials and weapons available to fight back to make get her to back off. Not only did the bluff work, it gave me enough time to actually prepare my materials in case of any attacks. For the first time ever, I was actually forced to write down feed (feed=chickenfeed=disinformation) on my diary because I knew the opponent regularly reads it. I guess this strategy can be used in almost any scenario, whether military or social.

"In times of weakness, act strong so as to force the enemy to retreat in a battle he could win.
In times of strength, act weak so as to force the enemy to fight in a battle he will lose"

Why is God bettter at computers than Satan?

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on
the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was
tired of hearing all the bickering.

Finally fed up, God said, "THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to
set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I
will judge who does the better job."

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
They moused.
They faxed.
They e-mailed.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They downloaded.
They did spreadsheets!
They wrote reports.
They created labels and cards.
They created charts and graphs.
They did some genealogy reports
They did every job known to man.
Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than ever.
Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed
across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power
went off..
Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in
the underworld.
Jesus just sighed.
Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their
computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming: "It's gone!
It's all GONE! "I lost everything when the power went out!"
Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the
past two hours of work.
Satan observed this and became irate.
"Wait!" he screamed. "That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all
his work and I don't have any?"
God just shrugged and said, "JESUS SAVES"

Guy Got Killed - My Speculations

A policeman was shot dead yesterday in an ambush by armed suspects. The killing took place at around the same time I leave for school and a few blocks from where I live. Here is the full article:

Cop killed in Pasig ambush
A POLICEMAN died after he was ambushed by two motorcycle-riding gunmen while on his way to work yesterday in Pasig City.

Senior Supt. Francisco Uyami Jr., Pasig police chief, identified the victim as PO2 Rolan Faraon, 28, detailed at the Intelligence and Investigation Unit of the Regional Headquarters Support Group in Camp Ricardo Papa, Bicutan, Taguig and resident of 192 Magtanggol St., Barangay Sumilang, Pasig.

Case investigator PO3 Roger Baltazar said Faraon was driving his white Mitsubishi Lancer on M. Flores Street, Barangay Bagong Ilog at 7:15 a.m. when he was blocked by the suspects clad in jacket and helmet.

The suspects drove near the policeman’s car and opened fire.

According to witnesses, the suspects shot the victim in the head to make sure he was dead before escaping.

Faraon died on the spot after sustaining eight gunshot wounds in the head and body.

Police said the killing was well-planned as witnesses said two more suspects on a motorcycle acted as look-outs.

Uyami said Faraon was among the 21 policemen who were implicated by a witness in the alleged illegal drug activities of Amin Imam Boratong, the alleged owner of the “shabu tiangge” in Pasig City smashed by police in February 2006.

Eastern Police District director Supt. Leon Nilo dela Cruz has ordered a deeper probe into the killing of Faraon.

Dela Cruz said there are so many angles that should be looked into, including the policeman’s alleged involvement in illegal drugs.

I would first like to say that my perspective on this matter will be based from whatever facts are available. I would also like to say how disappointed I am in letting such an opportunity slip past. The killing took place so close to me and at the exact same time I am at the district. I might have been able to at least witness it or perhaps even help identify the suspects. DAMN! Well, back to the matter at hand. Based from the cop's alleged involvement in illegal drugs, one can speculate that the cop was in fact "crooked". His murder was probably carried out by his former colleagues within the drug cartel. A possible motive is that his fellows in the cartel saw him as a liability because the cops were investigating him and his ties so they were forced to liquidate him. Doubtless, the criminal group is very much organized and tactically dangerous.

Strangely Enough

I can't believe I'm saying this but I actually feel safer and less paranoid when I'm in school. I think it's because there are only students and teachers over there and not other more threatening elements.

I need to pull myself together. I'm jumping at shadows all over...

My Brother's Holiday

I'm still having a wee bit of trouble remembering all the events that happened in my account of the here's another holiday from the perspective of another person : my brother.

I have no idea what he did in perfect detail nor does he a blog of some sort anyway. Here are summaries of what happened when I was with him

  • "joint-jurisdiction" in my room (in other words he took over MY room)
  • developed an insane addiction to Mortal Kombat
  • we ate an entire jar of sardines for a midnight snack (though he fell asleep and I had to wake him)
  • lent me a Robert Ludlum
  • went to a party with old veterans
  • used the ABS-CBN Newscenter as a personal computer shop
  • somehow, someway slept through a crowded bus with the speakers loudly playing The Beatles WHILE listening to his Mp3 Player
  • developed an insane desire to hit my face with foreign objects namely remotes and cellphones

THAT list would just go on and on and on...I'll update that next time...
